Superfood Chocolate Clusters!

Superfood Chocolate Clusters

How do you satisfy a chocolate craving without jeopardising your diet? Try these Superfood Chocolate Clusters packed with antioxidants, nourishing the body both inside and out.

 

SERVES – 1


 

INGREDIENTS


  • 2 Tbsp organic extra virgin coconut oil

  • 2 heaped Tbsp cacao powder

  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes 

  • 1 cup roasted almonds (could use other nuts such as macadamias)

  • 1 punnet fresh blueberries or 1 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup

 

METHOD


In a saucepan, heat coconut oil and cacao. Stir over a low heat until melted.

Stir through vanilla extract, maple syrup, coconut flakes and almonds.

Gently fold through blueberries.

On a tray lined with baking paper, spoon 1 Tablespoon at a time to form small clusters. Keep some distance between each cluster (Spoon out the mixture quite quickly as mixture will start to set and blueberries can clump together).

Place in the freezer to set quickly (literally takes 5 minutes) or refrigerator if not serving for a few hours. Enjoy your Superfood Chocolate Clusters!

 

Why use pure maple syrup?

Pure maple syrup is low fructose (eating high fructose foods can increase weight around the middle – the brain does not recognise fructose and is therefore converted to fat!!). Pure maple syrup contains important vitamins and minerals so it is a better (and more natural) choice than other sweeteners. It is also suitable for people with IBS who follow a low FODMAP diet. 1 Tbsp of pure maple syrup for a whole batch of clusters is still a very low sugar snack so can be enjoyed without feeling guilty!
